If I could describe Aragon in one word, it would be "competitive." Contrary to the school stereotypes surrounding the San Mateo Union HS District, though Aragon may not be the most "spirited," it is definitely the most hardworking. The students are driven; everyone is motivated to "make it" to a 4 year university, and challenges themselves to do well in their classes, with some even giving up some of their summer to take Chemistry so they can take AP Bio sophomore year.
The sports are fantastic, with a large variety to choose from, but unfortunately, no dance program. However, the media courses such as Digital Photo, AP photo and video are interesting and challenging, and doesn't fail to disappoint.
